I go in for my 36 week appointment, do you think i'm going to be checked for dilation? If so, what do they normally do...and is it painful? =*(

probably not until 38 + weeks. It doesn't really hurt. It feels better than the thing they put up there to do an exam.

When I went in for my 36 week appt, I told the Dr. about some pinching I was feeling around my cervix and she checked for me.. I was only at 1 cm. At my 38 week appt she stripped my membranes because they say that sometimes helps with the labor proccess...but she did it again at 39, 40 and 41 weeks...didn't work. I was 14 days past my due date when they finally induced labor!!
